 Web Search Engines

Google  
Startpage
...and its sister search engine Ixquick, are the only third-party certified search engines in the world that do not record your IP address or track your searches. Startpage is the default search engine for the privacy protecting TorBrowser.
DuckDuckGo
Simple, uncluttered search engine that makes a policy of trying to respect the user's personal privacy.
Google
An uncluttered, easy to use interface designed to make it easy for users to enter search queries and interpret results. Users can also enter a query and click the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button, which takes them directly to the website of the first search result.
Yahoo
Yahoo is a typical "portal page" to the Web but includes a good search capability.
Bing.com
I'm not a Microsoft fan, but it looks like they've done a nice job on this search site.
